Welcome To My World

Memories

‘These are the dreams we must savor…..memories are made of these’

Over the years we’ve collected thousands of photographs – ‘real’ photographs, that is. The type we used to get printed and then save in photo albums (remember those?) to be savored and passed around for a few days before being dumped in some corner. Forgotten until, in our case, we stumble upon them when we have to pack and move again. It’s been quite a few years since we too ‘digitalized’ our memories which made for easier storage but in many ways they will never replace ‘real’ photos nicely arranged in albums which you can touch and feel.

Perhaps it was the fact that our thoughts and memories always turn back to family and friends back home on special occasions like this Good Friday and Easter weekend that made us rummage through our garbage storeroom to find the carton (weighing 15 kgs – yes, I weighed it :)) where we keep all our photographs and albums. And so, my wife and I spent this Easter weekend refreshing memories and contemplating the more than two decades we’ve spent together, digitalizing our past contained in the photographs the only way we know how – photographing the photos and saving them on to our computer.

With our Silver Jubilee coming up next year, it made me think of the life journey that we’ve been through. With God’s Grace, we’ve had a blessed and wonderful life. We’ve had our ups and our downs but God has guided us this far and I know He will continue to be there throughout the rest of our journey.

It has been an exciting and exhilarating journey which I will be sharing through some of the photos that we saved this weekend. If I can upload them properly, that is 🙂

So here goes……

Isn't she lovely....

Isn’t she lovely….

Sorry, maybe it’s me, maybe it’s the internet, I don’t know, but after trying for the past half an hour, I’ve only managed this one photo with ‘error’ messages coming up for all the other images. But since I’ve come this far, I’ll post it anyway and try to upload more images later.

Or, maybe, this is WordPress telling me ‘Enough already. With a bombshell like that why do you need to upload more?’ 🙂

As promised, here are more photos:
